Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Custom Classic in blonde finish signed by Fender Master Builder John Cruz. This guitar was apparently built by and possibly owned by Fender Custom Shop Master Luthier John Cruz however there is not documentation to prove this other than the signature on the back of the headstock, so this guitar is being valued as normal. This guitar features an ash body, AA birds eye maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Equipped with Fender Broadcaster Single-coil pickup in the bridge and a “Twisted Tele” single coil in the neck controlled by a master volume and master tone control and complete with a 3-way pickup selector. The 25.5″ scale length neck has a large “C” shape neck profile with a 9.5″ fingerboard radius, and 22 American standard frets. The chrome hardware is modern Fender branded tuning machines, a modern bridge and knurled flat-top knobs.

This guitar is in excellent condition however there are a couple of small dings, some discoloration near the input jack, and some wear at the neck pocket (see photos). Freshly re-strung with 9-42 gauge strings and setup in standard tuning, this guitar looks plays and sound fantastic! Comes with the original tweed hardshell case.
